The skills and tools we bring have been developed through our broader work experience. This included working in association with a major UK Consultancy to help a prestigious global Automotive company to deliver savings and wider benefits through sourcing projects.
To train and mentor multiple project teams, each conducting a deep dive into category strategies across production and non-production purchasing. Typical cohorts consisted of 5 project teams of 4 people drawn from purchasing, cost engineering and value engineering collaborating with stakeholders across the business and reporting out at board level.
Projects supported were found across a wide range of categories:
- Production parts
- Aftermarket parts
- Connected Car & eMobility
- Mobile phones
Collaborative working between the team delivered savings and wider benefits through:
- Problem solving and data collection
- Procurement analytics
- Developing and improving category strategies
- Communication & Influencing
- Facilitating Workshops
- Stakeholder engagement & communication
- Presentation and story lining
